Engineering Audits & Inspections

Engineering audits and engineering inspections are an integral part of both new projects on site and ongoing operations.  They are an exercise in benchmarking to assess and understand what is currently in place and quantifying this through reporting.  They can identify areas where corrective actions may be required to achieve compliance, or where improvements would provide a benefit to the client.  Engineering audits and engineering inspections are tools that can also be used to determine if a project was installed in accordance with the original designs, and provide an accurate starting point for future projects.  They can also be an opportunity to have an independent set of eyes review the situation and provide an informed assessment.

Orana Engineering employs a risk based approach to help clients prioritise any corrective actions or recommendations.  Engineering reports are produced confirming how existing systems and operations align against current standards or amendments to standards and identify any corrective actions that may be required to meet compliance.

Our audits and inspections services are relevant across all engineering disciplines including electrical, mechanical, structural and control systems. Explore the case studies below for more information on engineering audits and inspections services by Orana Engineering.
